The recent death of iconic director William Friedkin has rekindled interest in it.

The limited engagement highlights William Friedkin's Extended Director's Cut, sourced from the Original 1973 Cut Camera Negative with newly restored 

and remastered picture and sound in stunning 4k, removing dirt, scratches, and other defects while preserving the film's creative integrity.

Before each screening, cinema historian Ben Mankiewicz hosts a fresh special homage to Friedkin, who died on August 7 at 87, honoring his legacy.

The Extended Director's Cut includes scenes missed in the theatrical release and an alternate ending.
